The second in our series following the Video Study the Ridiculous Journey from the work of the People. Nadia Bolz Weber argues getting close to God is dangerous. In Luke 18:18-26 Jesus invites a man to sell all his possessions and follow. A line from this scripture is used by Kenneth Copeland in his Inside Edition Interview to justify buy a plane with church money. But getting close to God is dangerous.
